Is Planning Permission Required for a Mezzanine Floor?
Typically, planning permission isn’t needed to install a mezzanine floor — section 55(2)(a) of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 allows internal works (that does not affect the exterior of the building) without the need for planning permission. However, there are some instances when planning permission is required, such as:
- If there is a previous condition attached to the building prohibiting the installation
- If the mezzanine flooring is for retail space and would exceed 200m²
- If the size of the mezzanine floor exceeds one-third of your current floor space
- If the external appearance of the building would be altered, including the installation of windows.
Our project managers are on hand to advise on any planning permission concerns.
